Should Reading-Disabled Adults Be Distinguished From Other Adults Seeking Literacy Instruction? A Review of Theory and Research (1993)

This paper examines current research on the nature and treatment of reading disabilities during childhood and adulthood. This study suggests that there are fewer differences than traditionally has been assumed between adults with reading disabilities and adults with reading problems that stem from a lack of educational opportunity or from a generally weak aptitude for learning. In particular, this paper emphasizes the need to develop adults' word recognition skills, while helping to overcome other impediments to successful reading comprehension.
